WESTHAM, 04-01-19 (A) PL

Time for a trip down to london after a disappointing result against the foxes, imo anyway. Now for another mid table team we should be beating if we habour ambitions of winning this title. We have to beat those teams outside of the top 6, we can't afford to be dropping many more points against these mid to bottom of the table clubs, 5 points is nice but it's not a big margin, couple of draws for us and wins for city and that's wiped out, on to the team.

Looks like Milner will come back…

Leicester, 30-01-19, PL (H)

Seems so long since we played but back to the prem now with a visit from leicester. Really bad news as regards Gomez, just as he was about to make a come back, not sure how much longer he'll be out for but it's a blow.

The usual front 3 of course and Alisson, Robertson are certs to start, the rest is anyones guess, we're at home so we attack, my guess is a midfield of Shaqiri, Hendo and Wijaldum with Milner falling back to RB and Fabinho at CB depending on the fitness of Matip and…

Crystal Palace 19.01.2019 PL Home

Another chance to keep up the pressure on city by claiming all three points. Given Palaces win at the Etihad Palace will fancy their chances so I dont think we will see the bus Parked. Injuries have started to appear but given the forthcoming fixture list i think we should still be strong enough to on paper keep up the winning form, we have learnt to win ugly if needs be.

So to saturdays team ,…

Brighton, 12-01-19, PL (A)

A tad disappointing being knocked out of the FA cup but now it's all about how we react. We know Lovren, Gomez and Matip are out so i'm going to put Fabinho back there to partner VVD, he done very well there recently so i've no worries about the rest being out. Keita clearly needs game time so i'll put him in as well alongside Shaqiri and either Hendo/Milner. The usual suspects up front for sure.

                                                                     Alisson

Wolves, 07-01-19, FA Cup (A)

FA Cup time with a trip to wolves and to be honest i'm not arsed win or lose. I expect a lot of changes with the likes of Keita, Shaqiri, Sturridge,Camacho, Origi and Lallana all starting and our old friend Mignolet as well. the team might look something like this, 

                                                       Mignolet, 

                                      Comacho   Lovren   VVD    Moreno

                                          Keita    Fabonho …

City, 03-01-19, PL (A)

Time for the big game, could it be a title decider, not for me, we can afford to lose and still win the lge, of course we want to keep that winning mentality going, last thing we need now is a knock to our confidence but i just can't see it happening, i think we'll beat city and go on to lift the title.

The midfield as always is so hard to predict but i'm tempted to go for a less attacking midfield and more of a holding/defensive one and hence why i'm putting Hendo and Fabinho in…

Arsenal, 29-12-18, PL (H)

Almost forgot this one the games are coming so fast now. Another big test for the boys but one i think we'll manage as we're so good at home this season, win for the reds i feel. I'll get straight onto my team.

4 of the back 5 picks itself as does the front 3, RB is difficult to choose between Clyne and Arnold, Clyne has done very well since he's come back so as Arnold played our last game i'll go for Clyne here. Midfield is always tricky but mine would be Fabinho, Hendo and keita, i…

Wolves, 21-12-18, PL (A)

Sitting pretty on top of the lge and still unbeaten but this game is very much a bannana skin and i say that because wolves have had some good results against the top teams this season.

From what i'm reading Milner is very hopeful of being fit so he's an option for RB but i'll put Clyne in as he done well against united, i'll put Lovren in as Matip is out longterm. I think the rest of the team picks itself really,

Manure, 17-12-18, PL (H)

Biggest game in the PL in my opinion, could'nt believe the stat that we haven't beaten them at home in 4years so we're definitely due a win and i think we'll get it here. I'll get straight onto the team.

Arnold has been added to our growing list of injuries at the back but i'm not worried as such, we can still play Milner at RB and Lovren, if fit, can come in to partner VVD with Robbo at LB. Midfield is always tricky to predict but how about Keita, Hendo and Wijaldum with the usual…

Napoli, 11-12-18, CL, (H)

Great to be looking down on all the other teams in the lge but i'm far from getting carried away, let's enjoy it for now, meanwhile we have a vital CL game ahead. It's all or nothing for us now and i'm very thankful this game is at anfield as i believe the amazing european night atmosphere will pull us through.

I think the team for this game almost picks itself and i don't think it will be too far from the team that played against bournemouth. Although i don't rate Matip he did play…

Bournemouth, 08-12-18, PL (A)

Big blow that Gomez is out til the new year but we carry on, my only concern is the awful Matip looks like he'll start here as Lovren is also ruled out. Robertson should return at LB but Mane is also a doubt but nothing serious apparently. I have but two wishes for this game and that's that Keita and Shaqiri start, especialy Keita who played very well against burnley, let's keep his progress moving along nicely, big player for us this season i feel. My team for this game,

Burnley, 05-12-18, PL (A)

What a stroke of luck we got in the derby, cheers pickford and Origi of course. Disgraceful that Klopp has been charged over his celebration, what moriniho did last week was much worse but no charge for him, anyway, onto the team.

Is it time to give Firmino a rest and bench him for a game or two, i think so, he's been way off form all season, we have Studge, Origi and Solanke who can come in and give Klopp something else to think about but i'm screwed if i know which one although i am…

Everton, 02-12-18, PL (H)

Quick one for you guys, on my way to work. i'm going for a similar team to the one against PSG exceprt i'm dropping Firmino and having a 4-3-1-2 setup with Mane and Salah up front with Shaqiri in behind them. My midfield would be Milner, Fabinho and Keita, back 4 of Arnold, Gomez, VVD and Robertson.

                                                                 Alisson

                                              Arnold     Gomez   VVD    Robertson

PSG, 28-11-18, CL (A)

A few different ways we can qualify, i'm sure you know them all so i won't bore you with them. As usual the front 3 picks itself but there may be a bit of a shuffle at the back, has Lovren earned himself a slot beside VVD and will Klopp move Gomez to RB, not for me, i feel Arnold deserves to start, he's getting back to some good form and his recent goals will have given him a confidence boost, it's the midfield that is always so difficult to pick. Will Klopp go for the experience (Milner,…

Watford, 24-11-18, PL (A)

Finaly, back to the Lge action and a possible tricky away game at watford, their flying high and their confidence will also be high so we need to be on our game here i feel. Having said that we've been winning ugly most of the season so i do expect us to win this one, onto the team.

As far as i can see we have no new injury concerns after the international break so again i think the back 5 and front 3 pick themselves but as usual the midfield is tricky to call. There's a lot of people…

Fulham, 11-11-18, PL (H)

I don't think i need to say anything about tuesday night's game so i won't. I'm hoping it's a good thing that we have the team bottom of the Lge up next so it should be a great chance to bounce straight back with a good result/performance. Let's get onto the team.

4 of the back 5 picks itself but what about Arnold now that he's in a dip of form, is there a case for giving Clyne a start here? possibly. The midfield as usual will always throw up a debate so here's one for you, have we…

Redstar, 06-11-18, CL (A)

Back to CL action now after a bit of a disappointing result against arsenal after we were leading but still a point away to a reguvinated arsenal is not the end of the world. 

We comfortably beat Redstar at anfield but we may not have it as easy away even though i do expect us to win. I think we'll see a few changes for this game with the likes of  Sturridge, Moreno and Keita Starting, we may even see Mignolet between the sticks, Could we even see Lovren and Matip as our central…

Arsenal, 03-11-18, PL (A)

Apologies for my absence guys, ive been away on holiday. A big thanks to Hutonian for posting the match blogs.

The games between us and the gunners are normaly crackers and this should be no exception. I have to admit i'm a little worried about this fixture as arsenal are in great form so far this season while we have been winning most of our games we are not really playing well but maybe with Salah back scoring it will give the team a boost and hopefully kick start our season…

CARDIFF CITY, 27-10-18, PL (H)

What has happened to our master poster Warrior?  There's been nothing from him since Harry Wilson's goal sunk Ireland 10 days ago!  So it looks like I'll have to step in again.  It would not surprise me if Klopp plays the same team as against Red Star.  He doesn't have to save players for mid-week as we have no game until Saturday.   However he may want to give Joe Gomez a rest and may not want to play Fabinho twice in a few days with him still reaching match fitness.  So my predicted team…
